Dublin, Ireland50 contributions47 helpful votes
We booked here for two nights. The room was lovely, with a balcony and overlooking the Tidal river. The bathroom was great, heated floor and a shower that was so nice. The Hotel is located not even 2 minutes walk into Nelson main centre. There was ample parking also. The service was lovely and friendly and everything was clean and tidy as you'd expect. We had breakfast in their restaurant at a reasonable price and there was a good selection off a menu. We had dinner with family in the restaurant on one night and it was very nice. Overall this is somewhere i'd recommend and would stay at again.

Hotel's Favourite
Awesome three-night stay. The room was able to be cleaned everyday, and individual requests were provided for (like extra towels). The first night was incredibly hot so we had to get up in the middle of the night to turn on the air con. The location of this hotel is absolutely awesome, being only a minute walk to central town. That was convenient as we were able to go to and from our hotel with ease. Nice stay, 10/10!
